You know, that checking isn't far off from my strat that was not artificially aged; natural checking that is very similar.
- Checking. This one was painful. You have two options. Razor blade across the body style, or compressed air/blow dryer style. I went with the across the body style, but specifically asked for just a little here and there and that I didn't want the entire body to be lined up and down b/c I think it looks fake. This information didn't make it to the aging guy, and now you can see from one photo, the entire body has been checked. Front and back are the same. Its super excessive. And the most disappointing thing about the entire project. The metallic in the silver makes it worse b/c it stands out in certain light. A lot of the photos I took were angled so that the checking wasn't visible. If I could go back I would avoid it altogether but we are hear now and the "Checkocaster" lives
